i2o_scsi(7D) Devices i2o_scsi(7D)NAME
i2o_scsi - an I2O OS specific module that supports SCSA interface.
The i2o_scsi OSM module is a SCSI HBA driver that supports the SCSA interface.
It supports both SCSI Adapter Class and SCSI Peripheral Class functions. It translates the SCSI packet coming down from the SCSA into an
I2O SCSI Peripheral Class message, passes it along to the IOP which in turn passes it to the HDM (hardware specific module).
It also uses SCSI Adapter Class functions to manage the SCSI adapter and SCSI bus. For each SCSI Adapter Class I2O device (a SCSI con-
troller), it claims the SCSI Peripheral class devices which are attached to that port. The existing SCSI target drivers which use the SCSA
interface should only work with i2o_scsi. This includes target drivers like sd, st and so on.
/kernel/drv/i2o_scsi.conf configuration file for the i2o_scsi driver; there are no user-configurable options in this file

scsi_address(9S) Data Structures for Drivers scsi_address(9S)NAME
scsi_address - SCSI address structure
Solaris architecture specific (Solaris DDI)
A scsi_address structure defines the addressing components for a SCSI target device. The address of the target device is separated into two
components: target number and logical unit number. The two addressing components are used to uniquely identify any type of SCSI device;
however, most devices can be addressed with the target component of the address.
In the case where only the target component is used to address the device, the logical unit should be set to 0. If the SCSI target device
supports logical units, then the HBA must interpret the logical units field of the data structure.
The pkt_address member of a scsi_pkt(9S) is initialized by scsi_init_pkt(9F).
scsi_hba_tran_t *a_hba_tran; /* Transport vectors for the SCSI bus */
ushort_t a_target; /* SCSI target id */
uchar_t a_lun; /* SCSI logical unit */
a_hba_tran is a pointer to the controlling HBA's transport vector structure. The SCSA interface uses this field to pass any transport
requests from the SCSI target device drivers to the HBA driver.
a_target is the target component of the SCSI address.
a_lun is the logical unit component of the SCSI address. The logical unit is used to further distinguish a SCSI target device that supports
multiple logical units from one that does not. The makecom(9F) family of functions use the a_lun field to set the logical unit field in the
SCSI CDB, for compatibility with SCSI-1.

I have been attempting for the last few hours to change the root device to IDE from and SCSI adapter ... after modifying who knows how many files... (system still runs as long as the SCSI controller is present) ... as soon as I take it out, it gives me a panic, saying that rootdev cannot be... (3 Replies)
Hi. I need to find a simple SCSI adapter card for a Sun Ultra 5 workstation. I don't need the type w/ ethernet attached (e.g. X1032) as I already have ethernet onboard & they are more spendy.
I know Adaptec is out, but what unit would work? I am attaching an external SCSI tape unit to this... (4 Replies)
Okay. I admit I'm sort of a newbie in this regard.
I installed a SCSI adapter on a Sun Ultra 5 workstation. I did the standard STOP-A on the startup and got the OK prompt. I then tried probe-scsi-all. It dumps me back @ the OK prompt w/ no message whatsoever. I tried probe-scsi, nothing.

I have 1 PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter card for my p570 server. I would like to split the 2 channels for the usage of 2 tape drives in different LPARs. Is that possible?
For example, I have 2 LPARs running in p570 server, LPAR-A configured the Ultra320 card as pci7 in slot... (11 Replies)
I was hired by a company, and part of the agreement is that I complete the first exam for SCSA Solaris 10 within 60 days, and that I complete the second exam 60 days after that. Other than a book off of amazon, and downloading e-exams online does anyone have any suggestions? (2 Replies)

how can I make interfacing with the SCSI controller on linux system using C language to send or recieve data via this SCSI port like I made with serial port and socket ???:confused:
how can I deal with this port ??:rolleyes:
how can I get its address or its device name ???:eek:
thanks for help. (2 Replies)
Has anybody worked with writing scripts with peripheral devices such as relays and/or switches? For example, writing a script that activates/deactivates a relay switch to turn devices on and off. Or maybe writing a script that checks the status of a peripheral on/off switch to provide a remote... (4 Replies)
I have a known good external SCSI HD running SCO UNIX OpenServer 5.0.7. I decided that I wanted to be able to run this drive on another computer, so I bought the same SCSI card as before (LSI) and then attempted to boot on the other system. The bootup process hung with the error F painit. I've... (13 Replies)
We had a hardware problem with an IBM System p5 server, with AIX 5.2
We restore from a tape the last backup we had, but the server does not boot up as expected.
